+ - 100K Californians to be Gene Sequenced->

Submitted by

eldavojohn writes "A hundred thousand elderly Californians (average age 65) will be gene sequenced by the state by using their saliva samples. This would be the first time such a large group has had their genes sequenced and is hoped to be a goldmine for genetic diseases--from cardiovascular diseases to diabetes and even the diseases associated with aging. Kaiser Permanente patients will be involved and they are aiming to have half a million samples ready by 2013. Let's hope that they got permission from the patients' doctors first."
